Austin is a very bright city....literally. The sun is shining (or was a least was yesterday when I wrote this - it's pouring now! That should teach me a thing or two about scheduling posts a day in advance), the birds are chirping (again, I should use past tense), the houses and shops are painted all colors of the rainbow, and the neon lights of South Congress seem to coordinate perfectly with this town's eccentric and stylish mannerisms. Ever since moving down here, I can't help but shun my previous neutral ways. I think the now-normal levels of vitamin D are responsible for this. ;) Whether you wear your color, decorate with color, or simply eat it (skittles don't count, y'all), living loud with color is something I think we should all pledge to do a bit more. I bet you are all a bit happier after seeing this post, no? Color. It's a bona fide mood booster.
